Hi,

The VI collection includes both "standard" and "medium" weight timpani mallets. What the difference? Shouldn't "medium" mallets be the standard/generic type, as opposed to the softer and harder types?

Hello Paolo!

For the VI Timpani library we recorded two sets of timpani. Timpani A have only been recorded with one kind of mallet. That's why the mallet is simply called "standard mallet". Timpani B have been recorded with different kinds of mallets.

Best regards,
Andi

Andi, thank you very much for this clarification! I now understand that they are not variants of the same instrument.
